*I'm So Excited!*

Tonight is going to be so awesome!!!  Merlie (see the link under CalGals for a link to her blog) called me last night to offer me four tickets to the Grey Cup Gala concert at the Saddledome tonight.  I had thought about getting us tickets to this concert as our favourite band is playing at it.  All four of us love the music of Great Big Sea.  But I couldn't see spending the money not knowing how long they would be performing and not having any interest in the other acts involved.

Merlie had no idea how much we love Great Big Sea....  but she had these extra tickets for the box (thanks to her hubby's work) and she thought of us!


 I had been asked to go shopping in Kalispell this weekend with some good friends but I decided that there wasn't enough I could get there for a good price that would make the trip a good idea financiallly.  I could have just gone for the fun, but I felt bad about the money.

And now I know that there was a reason I didn't go on the trip!  I would have been so bummed to have been missing out on Great Big Sea tonight!!

Merlie, you rock!

This is another of the cards that I created earlier this week.  This time it's for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.  I had a lot of fun with the colours for this card.

Items Used:
*Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Baja Blue, Purely Pomegranate
*Patterned Paper:  My Mind's Eye
*Images:  Stampendous
*Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Spica
*Tools:  Big Shot; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder; Fiskars snowflake border punch
*Challenges:  MTSC49

I managed to get some more Christmas shopping this morning.  I have one person I still need an idea for, a few people who are getting gift cards that I need to go pick up, one more "big" thing for each of the kids, and then little things for the kids and Bruce.  I'm almost done!  I might do some wrapping in the next few days so that when the tree goes up next week there are some items to go under it!

I can't believe Christmas is less than a month away!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoy your Saturday... you know I'll be enjoying mine!!!
